Brother LX2763 - a full featured sewing machine
Having completed several craft projects today using the Brother LX2763 sewing machine, I think this sewing machine would be more than adequate for the everyday sewing needs of the average person. While this machine is comparatively light weight, it feels very sturdy. Rubber feet on the bottom of the machine prevent it from sliding on the work table. This is a full featured sewing machine which can be operated at impressive speeds on long, straight seams. It is easy to select any one of the 27 different stitches which are conveniently illustrated on the front of the machine. Dials on the top of the machine make it easy to control the length, width, or tension of the selected stitch. The LED light is helpful and the built-in thread cutter is very convenient. The foot pedal control is pleasantly responsive. Six different sewing feet are included, along with several bobbins, and a comprehensive multi-language user manual. An instructional DVD with a 24-minute video is also included. I found it helpful to watch the video before reading the manual and operating the sewing machine. I appreciate the heavy duty box that this machine is packaged in. This box will be re-used indefinitely when storing the sewing machine. Nearly 40 years ago, my wife struggled with a sewing machine when attempting to make clothes for our 5-year old daughter. My assistance was often requested. Somehow I ended up making a lot of clothes for my daughter and evolved into making my own shirts for several years. Now in retirement, I expect to be assisting with various craft related sewing projects using the Brother LX2763.
Nice full size sewing machine
The Brother 27-Stitch Sewing Machine is a great machine for beginners and seasoned sewers alike. Having used my mothers Singer sewing machine from the 70's, I was used to everything being made of metal and feeling real sturdy, so when this arrived I was concerned about the sturdiness and quality of the machine and was unsure of how long it would last. So far I have not had any issues. This sewing machine comes with extra needles (for regular sewing and heavy duty sewing), extra presser feet, button hole attachment, 3 empty bobbins, one bobbin with white thread already installed, bobbin spool, and a DVD and manual to get you started. It has a thread cutter on the side for easy convenient clipping after you get through sewing. There is a storage compartment in front of the sewing deck for storage of your extras and it also removes so you can easily sew hems and cuffs. It has 27 different stitches to choose from and an LED light for the sewing area. The foot pedal and power cord are connected so you don't have 2 cords to mess with. The dial changes the stitches. To me it seemed a little stiff when turning it. There is also a reverse stitch button. It has a handle for easy lifting at the back of the sewing machine. The thread spool on top of the sewing machine pops up and slides back down for when you store it, it is out of the way. Finally, another feature this has is a self threader which is pretty easy to use. Over all my experience with this sewing machine has been a good one. The plastic parts make it more light weight than the older versions our mothers and grandmothers sewed with but I do believe with proper care, this machine will last a long time. I would definitely recommend this to anyone starting out or who has been sewing a long time.
The little sewing machine that could do a lot
The Brother 27-Stitch Sewing Machine, LX2763 is a compact, light weight sewing machine that has a large amount of options for home use and even some advanced sewing accessories allowing you to do quite a lot. The machine is relatively user friendly, but you're going to need a few hours to learn the basics and experiment with all your options. The machine comes with an instructional dvd in various languages for a larger consumer base. I personally, had to go through it a few times as the instructions were not on this particular model, but one similar enough that you will get the gist of use. It also comes with a convenient quick start guide and other short cut materials with graphics showing the individual parts and their use as well as a dual language English/Spanish instruction manual. Lots of accessories and extra needles and bobbins. This machine is the 27 stitch model and has enough choices to make for some really great sewing. The only draw back is that it doesn't come with a cover or protective case. I suggest keeping the original box and plastic covers for storage or sew one to keep the machine dust free and protected. Also a lot of the accessories are plastic and look like they will break with heavy use, so keep that in mind. It comes with a convenient button hole attachment that is easy to install. The instructions on the dvd will walk you through the perfect button hole and button installation. The base has a detachable part making it great for sewing sleeves or pants. The machine is quiet when in use and has a very soft foot pedal making hands free use a breeze. I highly recommend this machine for it's ease of use, great accessories and extras as well as the light weight and compact size. It will do a lot and take up very little space.
Incredibly Fine Machine
I purchased this machine specifically for paper crafting and for transporting to our children's homes when they have a garment that needs repairing or remodeling. Little did I know what a great machine this was going to be when I expected to use it only occasionally. I'm so pleased with it I may use it more than my high-priced Husqvarna! I have been sewing for nearly 55 years, both personally and professionally. I've purchased only high quality machines because my sewing standards are very high. But after testing nearly every decorative and functional stitch on this machine, including the automatic buttonhole function, I was so impressed with the quality of the stitches, tension, speed and sound level that I'm convinced this machine is every bit as good as machines costing hundreds more. Many thanks to Brother for manufacturing a machine that anyone can afford that is one amazing sewing machine!
Awesome sewing machine for beginners!
This is a really nice sewing machine. It has a decorative panel on the front, which is nice to see as opposed to most sewing machines that are all white (usually). It comes with a DVD on how to use it, along with the operation manual, a quick reference guide to thread the machine and bobbin. Also included are a few empty bobbins and one that is fully wound with white thread, six different presser feet, an extra spool pin, a darning plate, extra needles and a twin needle, as well as the little screw driver. That’s a lot of extras. There are also other optional accessories, which are listed in the manual. Obviously the machine and power cord with the foot controller are the main pieces. It has 27 built-in stitches. This is a great machine for beginners and experienced sewers alike. It has a built-in handle for carrying. The light isn’t really that bright as far as I’m concerned, but I’m used to the regular bulbs that my old machine has instead of this one, which is like an LED light. It’s very easy to wind a bobbin and this particular model has what I would call a one-step bobbin, as it automatically puts the bobbin thread into the tension spring. It is easy to thread the top thread as well and even without the manual or quick reference guide, the machine is marked with arrows, etc. to show you how it is supposed to be threaded. It also has a one-step buttonhole feature that’s awesome. If your fabric is on the thick side, the presser foot level lifts up to accommodate the extra material. The only thing I had issues with was being able to access the stitches numbered 15 through 27, but after watching the DVD, it was really easy to do. The manual doesn’t explain this process that great, but the DVD is a great tool to have. I don’t care for the “storage” compartment, it is what makes your flat bed for sewing, but the inside for the storage is all open and I would be afraid of everything falling out. I’ve been sewing for many, many years and it just took a little “practice” for me to get used to this machine, as some of the features are in different locations than on my old machine. Through my experience, I have only used Singer and Viking machines. I had never used a Brother Brand machine before, but I highly recommend this sewing machine!
